WPTA junior coaching classes offer the highest quality coaching for your child on court. Our specialist team have over 25 years of experience in the tennis industry and have played to the highest level allowing us to give the right advice to your child about how to improve their tennis!
In order to get every child to improve their skills, we work in smaller group sizes than other programs and make sure that each player works at developing key fundamentals to build their game. Our program starts with really young players and goes up to squads for higher level players looking to compete.
If you are interested in joining the program, please have a read of what we have on offer and then contact our team for more information or to arrange a chance to sample the coaching we offer.
If you aren't sure which class fits your child's level then why not arrange to trial a class and see how you get on? All trials are non-obligated sessions, so if it doesn't work out then there is no charge to pay.
Arrange your session by calling the main office on 0303 652 1157 or email Angela: firstname.lastname@example.org
The governing body for tennis (LTA) has recently changed its formats for teaching players aged 4-11yrs and the overall program is now called LTA YOUTH. Players can start learning tennis through recommended programs at WPTA using LTA Youth as a guideline for our classes and coaching. There are 5 stages of learning with this program:
1. BLUE - players ages 4-6yrs who are starting on their tennis journey
2. RED - players aged 6-8yrs who are starting to develop better movement and co-ordination
3. ORANGE - players aged 8-9yrs who can play in a larger court space and hit harder/further
4. GREEN - players aged 9-11yrs who can play in a full tennis court, cover the court and play with tactics
5. YELLOW - players aged 11yrs+ who can play in a full tennis court and cope with faster ball speeds
WPTA Junior Tennis Program has classes in all of these categories including classes that are aimed at a variety of levels. We recommend calling our office and speaking to one of our team to find out how to get started, or you can speak to one of our coaching team on site.
LTA Youth Yellow players that are aged 11yrs and above should look to join our Junior Development program at Wimbledon Park. For the Autumn Term ahead starting in September we have called these classes WPTA Teen Development Classes.
Aimed at trying to help player progress their skills and become competent or higher level players, these classes allow players to develop both their physical and technical ability. They are also great fun and quite social meaning that players make friends and look forward to coming to class as well as getting all important weekly exercise.
Teen Tennis runs on Tuesday from 6pm-7pm & Saturday 3pm-4pm every week from September
WPTA is committed to using its coaching skills to help develop and nurture young talent on court. We have several players that have gone on to play at the highest level and continue to look for players with the necessary skills, mentality or movement that will allow them to make tennis their No.1 sport.
WPTA Squads run throughout the week and are run on an invite only basis. We specifically Talent ID our classes and make sure that we try to select a range of players at different age groups that are keen to cope with the demands of higher level tennis.
